About SIERRA CLUB Michigan Chapter

Location:

109 E GRAND RIVER, LANSING, MI 48906, US

Mission Statement

The Sierra Club's members and supporters are more than 3 million of your friends and neighbors. Inspired by nature, we work together to protect our communities and the planet. Founded in 1892, the Club is America's oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. Our mission is to: (1) Explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; (2) Practice and promote the responsible use of the earth’s ecosystems and resources; (3) Educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and (4) Use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

Description

Since 1967, the Michigan Chapter of the Sierra Club has organized the bold action of citizens working together to protect and restore our Great Lakes state’s health and heritage.

Our members care about clean water and air, wild biodiversity, and a safe energy future. They help us work towards these goals by supporting our efforts to:

  • Raise public awareness of human health and environmental threats.
  • Monitor water quality to help enforcement efforts.
  • Build coalitions for our issue campaigns to diversify support.
  • Find sensible policy solutions to our state’s problems.
  • Take legal action to stop corporate interests and government from harming public health and resources.
  • Fight for environmental democracy -- we lobby on critical environmental issues and report back on lawmakers’ actions -- we have a strong citizen lobbyist program, helping connect members to their lawmakers on important issues, and we also rally voters to elect pro-environment leaders.

We work to provide

  • communities free from poisonous waste;
  • clean energy from local renewable sources that grow our economy and reduce dependence on dirty fossil fuels;
  • wild places that provide clean rivers, wildlife habitat, and opportunities to fish, hunt, hike, and learn about the natural world;
  • and active participation in a democracy that ensures our elected officials fairly represent their voters, not special interests.
